Slovak police are investigating the case of a mannequin dressed in black clothes holding a mock weapon, which was placed in front of the St. Martin's cathedral on Sunday morning. The mass in the cathedral had to be closed down, as the police also had to look for explosives in the area. No explosives were found, though. "The investigator has started criminal proceedings concerning an offense restricting freedom of religion," stated the regional police's spokesperson Lucia Mihalíková, adding that the police call on the public for cooperation.
